of research for jk investment group and michael kujino who is with permanent portfolio fund. gentlemen, good to see you both. thanks for joining us. chris, it worked out perfectly for a stock like b of a which last year in 2011 was the worst performing dow component and this year it was the best performing dow component, so the dogs of the dow theory worked out that time, didn't it? >> right, he sure did, bill, and i think actually this one is going to be another darling for this year when you look out to 2013. it's interesting. the stocks almost doubled here in 2012 yet the analyst community has only 35% of their rankings in the buy category, so this one is a quiet performer. i think a lot of people were expecting regulatory environments to really play havoc with it towards the end of the year, and i think a lot of political capital will be spent on what's at hand right now obviously with the fiscal cliff, and obviously what we do with 2013, i don't think that you're going to see a lot of regulation questioned, asked during 2013. >> okay. >> i think this one is one stock that will benefit.

[laughter] i have had the pleasure of knowing david for 35 years. he was a president back then, too, of the "harvard law review." we are used to holding the reins of power. a chief justice also holds the reins of power. the only difference is that a chief justice must hold them lightly, lest he discovered they are not attached to anything. nevertheless, i know of the long and personal experience that david brings to rice, a special vision, and leadership. this school

this briefly, but the acting director of the cia, michael morelle is also complaining saying it quote, he departs from reality. should the government be working at all, in your opinion, with hollywood studios and helping them tell stories? this goes all the way back to top gun and maybe before that. is it a practice that should end in your opinion? >> no, i don't think it should necessarily end. i mean, again, you know, this film was originally set to come out before the election and we had documentation showing they were eager to work with them and make well, look very good, but i don't think it should end. you can work with the government without exposing national secrets and this highly classified after mission, the senators with all due respect would have been a lot better served dealing with it back then when they were getting unprecedented access and better served now to get to the bottom of benghazi and find out unanswered questions there and that's where their energy should probably be directed at now. >> dave: got to degree with you. scott taylor, great to have you. >> thank you.
